Located at 508 m asl, Tel is an ideal starting point for walks and hikes.
In the surroundings of Merano, about 10 minutes from Merano, there is the small village of Tel, belonging to the municipality of Parcines. At 500 m asl, the little village is an ideal starting point for hikes in the valley, but also perfect for trips to the higher mountains. With the station “Tel ponte”, the village is connected to the Val Venosta train, ideal for day trips to cities such as Merano or Bolzano.
Worth an excursion is also the S. Helena chapel. The sacred building in Gothic construction style was mentioned for the first time in 1326, but it is considered to be much older. The neo-Gothic altars in the interior, consecrated to S. Nepomuc and S. Valentino, dates back to the 17th century.
As far as hiking is concerned, there are many possibilities. The Peter Mitterhofer trail starts in the village of Tel, also the Roggia di Marlengo and Roggia di Lagundo pass in the vicinity.
